Mother Child Poem

A girl wishes that her Mother was there for her while she was growing up. Her Mom missed all the special experiences that they could have shared together.

I Wish

© Reba N. Mills
I wish you were here with me
I wish you were here everyday,
To hug me to ask me if Iím doing okay.
I wish you were here when I got my first doll.
So you could join us at the Town Square Ball.
I wish you were here when I played dress up,
So I could get into tons of trouble with your make up.
I wish you were here to see my through high school,
Then maybe you would know that I am not a fool.
I know its ok that you are not here with me,
Because everywhere I go, there God will be.
Itís ok not to have a mother,
Everyday I still go a little further.
One day I will have my own little girl,
We will laugh, dance, run, and twirl.
Into the evening we will drink lemonade on the porch swing,
I will teach her how to be a mother.
Because one day she will have her own daughter.
I wish you were here with me
Watching, so you could see what a good mother I will be.
